Great price for this. Two episodes have been released thus far and I'm enjoying it, hopefully the final one should be out before the year end

Good things and bad things about the game, not a bad game overall. I think it's generally better than the first game (so far) and despite the game still being very linear, it should have multiple endings depending on the choices, so at least the choices actually matter in the long-run unlike the previous game (where its ending and final episode was absolute sh*t).

Better than the original?

I have to disagree with you on that. The two games are totally different, in terms of concept. I thought Life is Strange's ending was a good one. Far from what you said. I'm also thoroughly enjoying the story of Before the Storm.

So far, that is if the final episode isn't bad. Although it is confirmed to have multiple endings so that itself is something way ahead than the previous game.

I liked the first game, though episode 1 had the absolute worst dialogue, and think it peaked at episode 2 and episode 3 (although I'm not entirely comfortable with the sudden 'discovery' of "going back in time via photographs") but I think what really ruins the game a lot is the last episode, because it was god-awful, and episode 4 I found to be not that good.

Heated, looking forward to playing, though I think I'll wait till all eps are out as it's annoying not being able to complete the story.

I adored the original Life is Strange. Though I too felt the earlier episodes were stronger and didn't really enjoy ep5 that much. I love the game for it's story telling, atmosphere and down to earth setting one can emphasise with. I felt the more relaxed and carefree pace of the earlier episodes (1-3) was better for plot development and bonding with the characters. Episode 4 was good but took the game in a darker direction I didn't really want it to go in.

By episode 5 I was so invested, especially in Cloe and Max I REALLY wanted to be able to achieve a 'good' ending for them, which those who have completed it will know (mild spoiler possibly) is sadly impossible because of the final two option choice which determines the (bad) ending you get.

Still think it is an amazing game and must play for anybody, just wish they hadn't felt the need to try and turn the final episode into a disaster/action affair, which is somewhat at odds with the rest of the game....

It was more of a climax thing to me. Episode 5 being it. The actual ending being a distaster? Depends on which you choose

Guess one is only technically a disaster, but both feel like a slap in the face when you have spent nearly the whole game trying to save Cloe to be forced to let her die at the end (or let the rest of the town get trashed and look like a selfish sod). SInce much of the game is about saving Cloe in one way or another it makes your choices feel meaningless, which is a shame because during the earlier episodes they felt weighty and meaningful as if everything you did could change the outcome, so it felt like a betrayal the game ending in such a binary way. Still love it overall but lost much of the desire to go back to it and try different things since it can only end one of two ways no matter what I do

Back on topic, how do people find before the storm length wise? Guessing it's shorter since there are fewer episodes? or have they made them longer to compensate for there being fewer?

Story wise it feels shorter. I guess it depends how you play it and if you talk to every single person and drag it out as long as possible.
